- When working with classes,…you'll hear the word Inheritance.…So, what is Inherited?…Inheritance provides a powerful and natural mechanism…for organizing and structuring your software.…This section explains how classes Inherit…both state and behavior from their superclasses,…and explains how to derive one class from another using…the simple syntax provided by The Java Programming Language.…Inheritance allows once class to be created…based on the definition of another class.…
The new class inherits all the instance data and methods…for the base class, thus reducing data redundancy.…There are numerous real-life examples of this concept.…For example, we might identify a shape class,…which describes a wide range of shapes.…For example, circles, rectangles,…and triangles are all shapes.…They all have some common characteristics,…but then each one has additional features…specific to that shape.…
For example, to calculate the area of a circle…you need to know the radius, pi r squared.…To find the area of a rectangle…
